Nintendo throws their hat into the Plug & Play ring with a miniaturized NES that includes 30 built-in games. Good luck finding one near its retail price, though.

Developer Message

Found in /usr/bin/kachikachi at 0x59988 is this message:

This is the hanafuda captain speaking. Launching emulation in 3..2..1. Many efforts, tears and countless hours have been put into this jewel.
So, please keep this place tidied up and don't break everything! Cheers, the hanafuda captain.

The name "Hanafuda Captain" is most likely a reference to the hanafuda cards that Nintendo used to distribute long before they became a video game company.

Regional Differences

Game Selection

There are eight games exclusive to each version of the console.

Exclusive to the Japanese version:

Any games that originally had different titles in Europe and Australia (Shadow Warriors and Probotector II: Return of the Evil Forces) now use their respective American monikers. The original European/Australian name of the former is still referenced on the back of the box, however.

  • The game icons in the Japanese version are rounder than in the international version.
